Hello Quest Families!

Ecology Week:
We met with students on Friday regarding Ecology Week.  Some changes and additions:
We will leave CBMS on Tuesday, April 12th at 6:30.  Please arrive 10-15 minutes early, but not before 6:00.  We will return to CBMS on Friday, April 15th at 4:30, not 6:00 as we first mentioned.

In addition to the packing list, students should bring a book.  Students can also bring card / board games in case of rain during free time at the center.  The weather in Maine looks varied for the upcoming week, so students should be prepared for rain, sun, warm and cold.  This should include extra socks, two pairs of shoes/sneakers, and a jacket.

Students who are NOT going to Ferry Beach will be taking day trips to Audubon Center in Huntington.  Students will be outdoors most of the day so should dress accordingly (jacket, waterproof boots/shoes or mud boots, water bottle).  The bus will depart CBMS each day at 8:15 and return by 2:15.

SBAC Testing:
Quest students will be taking the 5th Grade SBAC test the week of May 16th.  This is a computer-based test that students will take on their Chromebooks.  During this week, it is important to have students at school on time.  Please try to schedule any appointments for the afternoon or for a different week.
